will be harry reid and all the senate democrats up for reelection next time around. i think what john boehner and the house republicans are going to say is we'll take this up as soon as the senate passes it. and i would guarantee you that it's going to be very difficult to get this through the senate. senator reid has not come out four square behind the president's proposals. my guess is he won the -- his last election chiefly because he got the nra's endorsement. he's not going to necessarily want to turn his back. because if he does turn his back on the nra. and not just about the nra. i would say the nra has done a very good job of delegitimatizing itself with these ads. but that doesn't mean there's not a huge power of gun owners in a loot of these states, especially in red states and harry reid's got to worry about that as he comes into the next election. >> all right, gang, i want to say that we need to welcome michael steele aboard. we have wedged him into this conversation. there he is. mr. steele, it's good to have you onboard. >> good to be with you. >> we're going to shift topics b
the issue? >> reporter: craig, they are saying that they are encouraged by the fact that house speaker, john boehner, is putting forward a proposal that increases the debt limit without an equal amount of spending cuts. that was his long-held position a and he is abandoning that position, and saying that he will increase the debt ceiling for a period of three months and in that timeframe, the congress has to come up with a budget and that is a win from the democrats standpoint, but they do not like the idea of increasing the debt limit in increments. the question is, if it gets passed will it force both sides to come to the table on spending cuts within a matter of months when they take on the issue on of the budget and then of course, the sequester. that is the big question mark, you heard nancy pelosi saying she does not like the idea and i have spoke to republicans that do not like the idea of withholding their pay if they do not get a budget passed. peter king of new york said it's like bribery. so, while aides on the hill are saying they feel confident that this package package will mak
with president's banter with john boehner. they were trying to have a shared moment. her body language as she's eating is like -- >> get him away from me! >> hal: which isn't that different from his wife who is on the other side of him. >> boehner's wife. >> you can kind of see mrs. boehner grabbing some silverware and putting it in her purse. >> no! >> hal: i think she spilled on her lap. >> i prefer to think -- >> isn't this sweet in low free? >> hal: if i was at the inaugural luncheon, i would take a glass. >> went on a white house tour and drank the water and i was excited. >> hal: golden child. >> this water's filtered for the president. >> hal: i bet this could kill a vampire. >> news it came directly from the potomac. >> hal: regarding this story the eye rolling story. apparently inside edition purveyor of everything journalistic hired a lip reader to see what john boehner was saying and apparently -- let's see, the lip reader believes that john boehner's asking president obama whether he had a chance to have a cigarette before the luncheon. and then boehner tapped the first lady on th
as he is being led to the entrance to the west front. john boehner, the speaker of the house, four years ago in 2009 was merely the house minority leader, now the leader of republicans in the house of representatives. there is the crowd on the national mall, the vice president. in the foreground, members of the supreme court. >> i guess there's no standard hat for the supreme court members. justice scalia has that kind of large beret kind of thing, and then justice breyer right beside him, something like a bellhop's hat, isn't it? i mean, how do you -- >> many descriptions out there. >> style it, kind of come up with a new hat. >> there's the chief justice, john roberts jr. and here are the ruffles and flourishes from the army trumpeteers announcing the president of the united states. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states, barack h. obama, escorted by jean hard win bore vits, terrance w. gainer, house sergeant at arms paul irving, chairman of the congressional committee on ceremonies, senator charles schumer, senator lamar alexander, the speaker of the ho
's comments, i think there are far reaching and might be unconstitutional. i helped john boehner and mitch mcconnell work hard to prevent him -- i hope john boehner and mitch mcconnell work hard to prevent him from doing whatever he wants. he cannot do what ever he wants. i think they should work together. it was a sad thing what happened on the east coast. that does not go to the root of the problem. people should not have guns, let's focus on them, not eliminating certain types of guns or clips. host: is there anything that the president said that you agree with? caller: he cannot use funding to study this because it is part of the constitution. i think that they should have some kind of universal system to monitor people that are near -- they are not right mentally or should not have guns. they should have a database. how much information they should capture -- these are all problems he should not do in two weeks for one week. he should talk with other people. congress should help as well. host: you mentioned you are an instructor. what is it that you teach? caller: economics and accoun
alexander, the wife of senator lamar alexander. and by debby boehner, wife of house speaker john boehner. sorry to interrupt you there. >> more recently, you may disagree with the content and the tone but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> we
of the senate foreign relations committee. leon panetta lifting the ban today on women in combat. john boehner saying president obama wants to an annihilate the republican party. all of that in the next half hour. i want to ask you right now what did you think of the inaugural ceremony. haven't seen you since and the president's inaugural address? >> some quick takeaways better address than in -- in 2013 than in 2009 because -- this is where the shortness helps because you can get a point. he wanted -- he laid out his broad ideals of what he believes in. and actually that's fine. first time around, it was too much of a list. i want to do this, that. you don't need it, you got the state of the union february 12th. it was -- it was very -- as a lot of people agreed with analysis i have and many others, it was, i think finally a tribute to the people who brought him to the dance because he talked about the very progressive and liberal ideals that he wants to be engaged in his second term. that's a quick take away. it also -- in a sense that speech was a tribute to the people who helped re-elect h
-- this was a direct challenge to people like paul ryan and john boehner and mitch mcconnell. he said yeah, you guys want to sit around, you know, and look at your navals and have this on-going debate about what the role of government and he said that's not -- we can have that little debate but that's no substitute for action. >> obama: progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> bill: that's it. that was it. that's what that -- address yesterday, i started to call a sermon really was. was all about. the president says that is our role. that's what we believe. if we really believe in the constitution, then he went on, we'll talk more about this. we've got to do something. about poverty. we have to do something about the disadvantaged. we have to do something about seniors and social security and medicare and medicaid. we've got to do something about gay rights. the first time any president's ever mentioned that. he came out and said if we really believe in that constitution, we shouldn't be deba
